Gopis in Hindu mythology, are the nine beautiful maidens who accompanied the youthful Krishna, and with him danced at night on the plains of Agra. Krishna is the Apollo, and these Gopis are the muses of the Hindus. The number nine might be doubtful, were not Krishna represented riding on an elephant, which is artistically composed of the forms of these Gopis.
